I get it. But, I am in the middle of helping people all over the country and even making one post is a time commitment that takes me away from my
work. It's hard for me to find time to even breathe sometimes I have taken on so much responsibility.
Like right now, today, I have to work on the Ashland garbage train issue where Chris Christie has dumped 45 million tons of New Jersey's trash in the
back yards of the residents of a small town in Kentucky.
In Hooven, Ohio the residents have a plume of gasoline under their town larger than the town itself that the EPA estimates will take 42 year to clean
up. The residents are sick. They tried to file a lawsuit after Erin Brockovich showed up to cherry pick for lawsuits, helped them get an attorney who
filed a lawsuit filled with inadmissible evidence which was immediately dismissed, and then went poof, like she does all over the country, leaving me
to play clean up for her failures as seems to be my lot in life.
In Hinkley we know the story. And much like the above Erin got got her money and ran. Today, the people in Hinkley are fighting PG & E to save their
town. Even though there are 100 other incidents in California where property values are not being lowered, in Hinkley they are being offered 10% of
the value for their houses, and being slowly choked out of their town.
In North Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale, and parts of Los Angeles, in the mid 1980's, Lockheed Martin spilled chromium-6 into the ground water supply
and then were awarded the contract to clean it up, for 20 million dollars. The chromium levels are twice that of Hinkley. While Hinkley is being
slowly destroyed no one is moving out of the San Fernando Valley. When the chromium levels got too high the US EPA, instead of cleaning anything up,
raised the allowable levels of chromium 6 so that they were placed back into compliance.
In Mountain View California, in 2011, Google exposed around two hundred of it's employees to TCE, a cleaning agent that was banned in the 1970's for
causing cancer, because it's Quad, an annex building, is sitting on top of a Superfund sites. There are special filtration systems in the building to
scrape out the toxic fumes in the air. At some point an employee came along and switched off the HVAC automatic system, and then hundreds of Googlers
spend over two months breathing in toxic fumes. My business partner is a Googler who works in that building. If you check my fan site you can see I
was standing inside the property, with a visitors pass, less than ten days ago.
These are just a few of the issues I am dealing with today. So, yes, I can work to get to twenty posts, or the admins can help me get something put
together so I can stay focuses on my battle. In general, the post I make are very popular too, and generate a lot of traffic, in addition to the
11,000 fans I already have, so they will get value of out taking some time to accommodate me.
